You know, I'm just not impressed with special effects anymore. Squeezing in a few more bits of texture mapping or upping the polygon count has hit something of a plateau of diminishing returns when it comes to CGI. They've also blow stuff up in just about every way imaginable in Earth-like conditions.
I still have an attraction for eye candy, but not in the way the explosion factories think: I like good cinematography. You don't need as much money for that. Of course, one thing that reinforced my liking for that sort of thing was Death Note. You can make writing in a notebook awesome with the right angles and movement.
Of course, all of this takes a back seat to good writing, good acting, and so on. That should go without saying.
